There's an episode where a woman says that her husband gets "mad at her" at home, and later says that she kinda likes it. There's also an opening scene where a guy doesn't let his girlfriend choose what she wants to eat. He gets told off by the main characters, but it could easily be triggering as it reminds of over-control.

It is implied that one of the main characters was neglected as a child. I would consider it emotional and verbal abuse. We do not see much, if any, of the childhood and there are no violent scenes. They're anecdotes said in passing, but could be triggering for someone who had a tough childhood.

Though there's a joke about someone who died that way. There's a lot of potentially triggering jokes on almost all topics listed even if it doesn't happen on-screen to be honest.

When Max and Caroline leave the psychic store - 12:58 (just before Max says “nothings coming crashing down around us”) a woman tells for Paul - he jumps out of a window. You can see the dummy they used fall onto the ground from above. Not particularly triggering but still an attempt.

an unknown man, even though we're not quite sure if it was suicide or an accident. in season 5, a protagonist acts like she's going to voluntarily fall off a bridge as a joke.

the word g*ps* is used multiple times, and some episodes/characters/anecdotes feel like bad clichés at best.

season 2, at some point there is blood on the walls, and not much later a character loses blood really graphically, although the way it happens would never happen in reality ; it's really troubling nonetheless. in season 5 a guy walks bare foot on a nail sticking out of the groud and loses a lot of blood really fast, twice, in the same over-the-top way as in the other scene mentioned, but this one lasts a lot longer.
